Imago Dei

Standard

No! Just no!!!!

Today the President of the United States said: “these aren’t people. They are animals” referring to immigrants.

I am so angered and sickened by this, I don’t even know what to say about it except.. it is absolutely despicable, horrific, and downright evil. History has shown us the evils of how this kind of dehumanizing moved nations toward slavery and genocide. This is sinful and it is outright evil. And the scary part is how a person in such power making such horrific claims can influence many on how they view and treat others.

No! No! No!

We have GOT to call this out for what it is and be a part of ending it!!!

To be silent is to be complicit.

And as a Christian and a person of faith, a huge part of our faith is to claim the imago dei in ALL humankind: to see that ALL humanity was created good and in God’s image… was beautifully and wonderfully made in the image of God. To deny this is un-Christian.
